Wear to Play: Brim Shot

Do you go “flat bill” like Rickie Fowler?

Is there a difference here? I mean, they’re both wearing flat-brimmed hats. There is the obvious: the man on the left, Stan Laurel, was one of the funniest people ever born; the man on the right, Rickie Fowler, is one of the funniest dressers ever born. And one of the items that makes the latter look funny is his flat-brimmed Puma cap. It’s one of those fashion statements made from the mouth that should have been kept closed. Is your head flat? Are you a gangbanger? Are the tops of your ears cold? Do you really want to make people laugh? See, Rickie reminds me of a tube of wasabi, but he makes lots of green for playing golf—and for looking silly while doing it. None of us do. That flat-brim you think you’re “rocking”? It’s just slapstick, not manly, becoming, or even relevant to what you are doing on the course. It’s hard to drive (or roll in a putt, for that matter) with anything flat.
